Abuja - The Corps Medical and Rescue Services unit of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has commenced a training workshop to expose its personnel to new techniques in moving and handling of patients.

The one-week programme is ongoing at the FRSC Academy in Udi, Enugu State.

Assistant Corps Marshal,  Samuel Obayemi, officially opened the workshop.

He assured the Corps would continue to develop the capacity of the staff for increased productivity.

He said the training was part of the staff capacity development programme of the Corps, aimed at updating the knowledge of the participants on handling patients most efficiently, using modern techniques and equipment in line with global best practice.

“Staff capacity development programme is part of the holistic measures we are putting in place to address issues of competence, efficiency and creation of conducive working environment to motivate staff for increased productivity," said Obayemi.

He said the programme would be of tremendous benefit to the participants. 

"Accordingly, you must strive to derive maximum benefits from the Resource Persons who would expose you to various areas in the field of moving and handling of patients,” Obayemi told the participants.

Obayemi said the management had continued to create opportunities for staff at both local and international levels to get them training that could develop their mental, intellectual and professional competences.
